Special Town Meeting
September 16, 2015
The meeting was called to order at 7:00 pm by Chairman Froeba. There were 6 Town residents, the board members, and one Town business owner present. There were 4 City of Loyal residents and Adam Hannah, Warden from the DNR.
J. Froeba reported on the cost of signs that would be required. Cost would be $ 37.50 per sign not including labor costs. He estimated approximately 36 signs would be necessary.
D. Geier from the City would like an ATV route on Willard Road to access the Rock Dam trail and also to the gun club on Chickadee Rd. B. Duell asked how the town residents would benefit from a city route to the gun club if Bluebird Ave would not be opened.
A. Hannah stated there is no legal way to have a route to Rock Dam as it would have to go over Hwy M. He stated that most Towns have routes as opposed to all the roads open to ATV/UTV, snowmobile traffic. Traffic is not allowed on State or County Highways. The game warden hotline would follow up complaints on the town roads if there were issues. J. Kennedy asked him about speed limits. He stated they are difficult to enforce. Most are 35 miles per hour. The whole route must be designated with signage that has arrows to designate direction. J. Froeba stated that more signs would be required than his original estimate. There is no grant money available for signs as they are not connecting to a trail. UTVs could be included in an ordinance. ATV/UTVs are not approved for transportation but are allowed for transporting Agricultural implements on roads. Registration for public use would be needed for ATV/ UTVs if town roads were opened for their use.
L. Esselman stated the river prevents crossing to the trail. B. Duell stated the City would need to open more routes. K. Santilli asked why the City has not given the Town any proposed routes. D. Geier stated the City is waiting for the Town. A. Hannah stated the City can develop a route as they do with snowmobile trails by getting permission to go over private land. He further stated that snowmobiles do less damage to top soil than ATVs.
B. Duell asked if the City doesn’t decide would the Town open to ATVs independently? D. Lindner stated he would like to travel on the roads and not worry about getting a ticket. E. Roehl stated 4-5 ATVs can cause a lot of trouble on the roads. After asking for any further comments The meeting was adjourned by Chairman Froeba.
